Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways

For this challenge, Cheri Lucas Rowlands of WordPress, wants us to capture two images – a horizontal and a vertical version – of the same scene or subject. There are no concrete rules, but it should be evident that both shots are of the same place/location or person/thing, and the photographs should ideally have been taken during the same shoot.

My contribution: two versions of a part of the Oskar Hansen’s Hoover Dam Memorial.



And for dessert – as these are both from a horizontal perspective (front and back) so not really suited for this challenge, but who cares after seeing this beauty 😉 – I want to show you two different shots of this classy Old Timer at the Hackberry General Store on Route 66.

Which version of both photos do you like best?

Travel theme: Architecture

For this photo challenge I decided to step back in time and post pictures of the past, which I shot these past weeks in the USA – in honor of the Native Americans. Their ability to live in harmony with nature was impressive and admirable. They can teach us a LOT.
